Application Process

Note: This process applies to domestic applicants only. International applicants, please visit our International Admission page.


Choose the program that is right for you:



Complete an online application.



Send the following documents to Xavier:

  • Current resume or CV uploaded to your online application
  • Official GMAT scores, sent directly from the testing service *
  • ALL undergraduate/graduate transcripts, sent directly from the University **


Check your application status page for updates to your application and to see your decision letter. Your application will be considered once all materials have been received. If you have not heard from us within two weeks of submitting your final item, please feel free to contact us.





* When you take the GMAT you will receive unofficial scores immediately. You may submit those scores to the MBA office for initial review. This will save the two weeks it normally takes for official scores to arrive. Official scores must still be submitted.

**Transcripts must be official, as well as final. A final transcript is one on which the degree has been confirmed and noted. If you are requesting your transcript before you have officially graduated, please ask that your transcript be held until the degree has been noted.


About the GMAT and GRE

The GMAT is our preferred exam, but we will accept the GRE if you have already taken it or plan to take it for admission into another program. We offer GMAT review sessions at least twice per semester. For more information, please visit the Events section of our website.
